Obama’s Emetic Action

By Joy Tiz

 

Great news for the Mad Dog of the Mid East – Obama took time out last night to reassure Gaddafi that the United States remains firm in its commitment not to put troops on the ground where they actually could pound the life out of him and his store bought troops.  With plenty of cash and gold on hand, Gaddafi can hire enough mercenaries to keep the war going for a very long time. As Gadaffi’s troops were pushing back the rebel forces from every direction on the ground, the president was crowing about his swift and decisive action, declaring he took control of the situation a month ago. In reality, he was finally shamed into action by France. [more...]

 

 

2012 Tea Party Prism

By John LeBoutillier

 

The Tea Party Movement is the driving force in American politics. In every aspect of our politics – both in campaigns, in State Houses and up on Capitol Hill – the Tea Party Movement is re-shaping the debate on debt and the role and scope of government. This grassroots, bottom-up movement completely dominated the 2010 GOP senatorial, congressional and gubernatorial primaries – and won almost every contested GOP race. Even long-time conservative senators were defeated in GOP conventions and primaries because, in the eyes of the Tea Party Movement, they were “too liberal” on fiscal issues. But not every Tea Party GOP nominee won their general election races. The two most notable losers of races that a better GOP candidate would probably have won were Delaware (Christine O’Donnell) and Nevada (Sharon Angle). With the power of the Tea Party Movement in mind, the best way to analyze the 2012 GOP presidential field is through a Tea Party prism. [more...]

 

 

A Speech and Obfuscations

By Joseph Klein

 

 

It is the responsibility of the president of the United States to clearly explain to the American people the vital national interests at stake when he decides to risk American blood and treasure in a war. He also must define the war’s mission and provide an honest appraisal of how long the mission may take to succeed. And, if at all possible, the president should provide this explanation to the American people before he commits the nation to a war of choice. President Obama’s address to the nation Monday night to explain the rationale and scope of what his administration calls “kinetic military activity” did not come close to fulfilling his responsibility. After waiting more than a month after the crisis in Libya first erupted (and nine days after U.S. military action began under the banner of international humanitarianism) to address the American people, the Nobel Peace Prize-winning president could not bring himself to use the obvious word that best describes what he decided to launch: a “war.” Instead, he described it as an “international effort” to prevent a massacre of civilians at the hands of Qaddafi.

Obama’s War and Hollywood’s Silence

By James Hirsen

 

Now that the Obama administration has decided to launch a “kinetic military action,” thereby intervening in what appears to be a struggle between Islamic jihadists and a murderous dictator, almost no one in Hollywood is voicing any opposition. Aside from Michael Moore, outspoken celebrities who very publicly castigated the war effort that was engaged in by the Bush administration are now strangely silent over Obama’s flexing of U.S. military muscles. This is in stark contrast to a few years back when gobs of celebrities picked up their anti-war megaphones. [more...]
